36% of #anti-malarial drugs in #SoutheastAsia are #fakemeds
We are proud to announce Malaria Consortium as a new Partner of the Fight the Fakes campaign!
Malaria Consortium is one of the world’s leading non-profits specialising in the prevention, control and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases.
They are on the frontline of malaria initiatives, with 95% of their staff working on the ground to strengthen health systems, change behaviours, improve disease prevention and treatment and spearhead international advocacy.
Counterfeit drugs for malaria are prevalent in parts of Asia and Africa and pose a serious challenge to malaria control projects. These poor quality drugs lead to prolonged infectiousness in patients and increase the potential for the development of drug resistant parasites. For information about their Containment Project to tackle drug-resistant malaria, click here.
